Genetic improvement of cellulose biosynthesis in woody trees is one of the major goals of tree biotechnology research. Yet, progress in this field has been slow owing to (1) unavailability of key genes from tree genomes, (2) the inability to isolate active and intact cellulose synthase complexes and, (3) the limited understanding of the mechanistic processes involved in the wood cellulose development. Here I report on the recent advances in molecular genetics of cellulose synthases (CesA) from… CONTINUE READING
